Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi everyone it's Christine here at Magenta. I've been playing with a fine tip pen (Sacura Micron 03) and shading the petals of the flowers.  This is a technique I found over at Split Coast Stampers called Stamp Etching. Once I finished the petals I coloured the leaves in Prismacolor pencils. I then masked the flower to blend the background and added some stencilling.


Bonjour tout le monde, c'est Christine ici à Magenta. J'ai joué avec un stylo à pointe fine (Sacura Micron 03) et ombragé les pétales des fleurs. C’est une technique que j’ai découverte chez des Split Coast Stampers, appelée "Stamp Etching" . Une fois les pétales terminés, j'ai coloré les feuilles au crayon Prismacolor. J'ai ensuite masqué la fleur pour mélanger le fond et ajouté des pochoirs.



This is a close up of how the etching starts out, you just build up the edges using a mix of short and long lines.


Voici un aperçu de la façon dont la gravure a commencé: vous créez simplement les bords en utilisant un mélange de lignes courtes et longues.
